Wide angle or fisheye lens
« on: June 04, 2012, 07:24:11 PM »

Hi guys, I bought XX36A for parking lot monitoring. Now I need a wider range of view. Does anybody know where to buy a compatible wide angle or fisheye lens for it? The wider the better. I don't care the image quality too much. Thank you first!

Why not just aim the camera towards a convexed mirror that is aimed at the parking lot.

I was also looking for something with a wider angle to cover both my vehicles. Convexed mirror ?????? now thats a stupid comment. why not duct tape and tin-foil....!!!! { sarcasm }... But on a more serious note there is some options out there, most involve buying a third party lens and glueing it to the front of the camera. Would be nice if x10 had options for their products.  And the x10 wide angle model of 90 degrees is not much of a improvement over 67 degrees angle.
